I've been to this place many times, but only in the last one I realised the surrounding beauty.
It is a big garden with different areas, with many birds (roosters, peacocks, ducks, gulls ...) and with amazing views over the city and the river :)
I really recommend this place to everyone, it is beautiful!
It also has a smal lake and privileged seats with amazing views and environment for relax, taking pictures.
Enjoy! :D

A lovely shady haven on a hot sunny day. The views down to the river were lovely. Nice spot to relax for an hour or so

Nice garden where sometimes you can even find peacocks walking around. It was formerly called "Pavilhão Rosa Mota", as a tribute to Rosa Mota, a portuguese former marathon runner.

Palacio de Cristal is definitely worth the visit, as it's got some very spots to enjoy the great views of the river and Gaia. The gardens are nice and were better maintained than we expected after reading the reviews online. We were able to relax in the shade on a very hot day but we didn't stay too long as there was nothing really special about the place apart from the view.
